Chocolate-mint Cream Doughnut Filling

Add richness to your homemade doughnuts with this cool, sweet filling.


  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk, divided
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 T. unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces chocolate, chopped (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract

In medium bowl, whisk cornstarch in 1/2 cup milk until dissolved; whisk in yolks and egg. In medium saucepan, whisk 1½ cups milk and sugar until steaming. Slowly whisk milk-and-sugar mixture into egg mixture; pour back into saucepan. Cook over medium heat until thickened, whisking steadily until it comes just to a boil. Press through strainer. Whisk in butter and chocolate until melted. Add vanilla and mint extracts. Chill, covered with a piece of plastic wrap or buttered waxed paper pressed directly onto the cream.

Makes about 2 cups.
